Minimalist Canopy Beds
If you have a minimalist canopy bed, keep it as it is — no details, no curtains, or other objects, the canopy bed, especially dark metal, is a bold statement in itself and will be the centerpiece of your bedroom. and If you want to make it more eye-catching, you can finish it with metalwork or add metal corners to it. Typically, a canopy bed doesn’t work in a smaller bedroom with standard 8’ ceilings,” explains Jessica Geller of Toledo Geller Interiors, “but because of the way the bed frame transitions from wood to metal, and tapers as it goes up, the canopy isn’t overwhelming in this space.” The color of the bed, a pale gray, blends seamlessly into the space, creating what Geller calls a “cocooning effect.”
Metal-topped canopy beds are definitely popular for many reasons. First, metal never goes out of style. Second, metal makes any space more elegant and stylish. Third, metal goes with any decoration or style, there is no need to go with metal now, so you don’t have to worry about it. The bed itself may be ultra-modern or more retro, don’t add anything to make the metal stand out. If you’d prefer a canopy that lays flat against your wall, you can use curtains or any other linens you have to lie around. But if you want something that looks more traditional, you’ll probably need to buy a proper canopy. Thankfully, these tend to be much more affordable than new bed frames.
